About this Journey

As the longest river in the world, the Nile carves a path through both the landscape and through history. Over 6000 years ago, one of history’s most famous ancient civilizations was athrive and the Nile river was at its heart. Used as a means of irrigation and transportation, the Nile fueled Ancient Egypt’s success.

Today, the river remains at the core of Egypt, with 95% of Egyptians residing within a few kilometers of its banks.

On this journey, trace the wending path of the Nile, ribboning through temples, mosques and tombs of past and present worshippers along the way. In the great river itself, watch modern Egyptians standing on the shores fishing, jetting past on water taxis and channeling the waters to nourish their crops.
